Each palmate leaf is made up of 6 or 7 leaflets each 1.5-2.5 centimetres (0.59-0.98 in) long. The herbage is coated in gray or silvery hairs. The inflorescence is up to 20 centimetres (7.9 in) long, bearing many flowers each just over a centimeter long. The flower is whitish with a light brownish wash on its banner. The fruit is a silky-haired legume pod up to 3.5 centimetres (1.4 in) long containing a few mottled brown seeds.
